I love the thin setting. No split shank.

@weddingbound:  This doesn’t look boring at all. In fact, it looks a lot like my ring, except blingier and more ballin’ (and mine’s Ring Bearer in the center.)

You’re always going to see someone with a neat new design, and feel a little twinge of jealousy because you simply cannot have one ring incorporate every look you think is gorgeous. But that’s what right hand rings are for.

I don’t know your financial situation, and it might not even be an issue, but I assume that you aren’t sitting on an unlimited amount of cash. So if it were me, I’d rather spend the money you want to spend changing your ring on something else, either upgrading your wedding in some way, paying down student loans/mortgage, or just having a really awesome honeymoon or vacation.

It’s pretty the way it is. Anything else you do to it won’t make it prettier, it will just make it pretty in a different way, and might actually damage the integrity of the ring.

I think your current setting is great! Although I LOVE the look of a split shank when the engagement ring is by itself, it can be really difficult to match a wedding band to the split shank, and if you’re like me, the assymetry of the curved wedding band would drive me bonkers! I think you should leave it as is, it’s perfect!

Thinner band. No split shank.

I am definitely partial to the thinner band because it looks similar to my ring 🙂 I have a Tiffany’s Soleste and I am totally in love with it.  I think the thinner band looks very elegant and make the center stone pop more.

1. It’s NOT boring at all. It’s gorgeous.

2. I love the thinner band better than the thicker one.

3. I LOVE split shanks. I have one myself. I just love how unique they are and that I rarely see them. That being said, I don’t think having a single shank makes you ring boring or not unique. It’s still gorgeous. But if you do decide to go with a split, keep in mind finding a wb could be more difficult if you are particular. I love gaps so I have a straight band with mine. But if you hate gaps you’d want a contour band and think about whether or not you’d be bothered by that.

Question: Did you get the thicker band because you were trying to make up for the space that a split shank would take up without having a split shank? If the thicker band was your compromise I think you should get the split shank. But don’t get it just because you think not having one makes your ring boring cause that is the furthest thing from the truth.
